Hello girls!

I have a doubt. I usually eat salty things. Toast with avocado, with turkey, with cheese ... but I bought peanut butter and I want to take a little in a bowl with cereals. I have some at home that have 21 grams of sugar per 100 grams. Do you think that is a lot? Better leave them for the S days ?. In that case, I could buy oatmeal without sugar, it would not be a problem.
Peanut butter and nuts would be allowed in days Not S, right?

I've had two regular peanut butters recently that have had around 7g of sugar per 100g so I'm surprised that one is higher. I guess each brand is different, they do lower sugar varieties though and some with no added sugar.

I am new to No S and only started last week so I can't really advise as I am new to this too.

Hello Tombo! I think I have not expressed myself well, I was referring to that I feared some cereals at home that have 21 grams. of sugar for 100 grs. I wanted to eat them in a bowl (cereals) with peanut butter, hence the confusion. I do not speak English and I use the translator, so sometimes I write some things wrong Embarassed

Thanks for your answer Smile

NO S guidelines are to curb eating sweets, not sugar. You do not have to check sugar content of every food. Just ask "is it a dessert or not?" If yes, don't eat it. If not, eat it. Peanut butter is not a dessert, therefore ok at all meals.

I eat cereal... any cereal for breakfast. (Though truth be told I rarely ever eat cereal anymore - it's usually a granola bar or yogurt on N days for me.) I personally follow "no desserts" (and no sugary drinks) rather than "no sweets" for N days, in part for easier "black and white" clarity on the sweets issue. For more literal No Sers, however, I believe that any "healthy" breakfast cereal would be fine.

Thanks for your opinion, Elizabeth7.

I do not think I'm going to eat them every day (I love salty breakfasts), but it's good to know that one day I can have it.

I've wondered about that too, Dalia, with the cereal. I am electing to have grown up cereals (lol) like Raisin Bran if I have a cereal. That to me seems reasonable.

There are about 14 grams of sugar in a medium apple; another half an apple would bring it to 21. That doesn't seem like an excessive amount of apple to eat at a time, so the cereal is fine, too. If you find it satisfying and eating it doesn't lead you to want more and more, eat and enjoy. If not, adjust. No shame! It's okay to discover along the way what foods at meals hit the right pleasure/nourishment balance. Sweetened cereal may fit the bill now and it may not later. Being in a hurry won't likely help you figure it out.

I second what Oolala said. On N days I try (don't always succeed) to eat foods that don't make me want to eat more of them than a moderate amount.

Thanks for your words, girls. I'll eat the cereal (I'll make an overnight oats but without oatmeal Laughing )
